The 1999 landmark study titled To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System highlighted the unacceptably high incidence of U.S. medical errors and put forth recommendations to improve patient safety. Since its publication, the recommendations in To Err Is Human’ have guided significant changes in nursing practice in the United States.
Review these recommendations and consider the role of health information technology in helping aIDress concerns presented in the report.
¢ Review the summary of To Err Is Human presented in the Plawecki and Amrhein article found in this week’s Learning Resources.
¢ Consider the following statement:
The most significant barrier to improving patient safety identified in To Err Is Humanis a lack of awareness of the extent to which errors occur daily in all health care settings and organizations (Wakefield, 2008).
¢ Review The Quality Chasm Series: Implications for Nursing focusing on Table 3: Simple Rules for the 21st Century Health Care System. Consider your current organization or one with which you are familiar. Reflect on one of the rules where the current rule is still in operation in the organization and consider another instance in which the organization has effectively transitioned to the new rule.
Post thoughts on how the development of information technology has helped aIDress the concerns about patient safety raised in the To Err Is Human report. Summarize, in one page, how informatics has assisted in improving health care safety in your organization and areas where growth is still needed.
